an encreasing challenge to america's military. this is the environment that is facing the department of defense as it enters a third year of flat or declining budgets. the onset of these constraints has led to belt tightening in military modernization, force structure, personnel costs and overhead expenditures. it has given us the opportunity to reshape the military and reform defense institutions to better reflect 21st century realities. the process began under the leadership of secretary gates. secretary gates curtailed more than 30 modernization programs and trimmed overhead costs within the military services and across the defense enterprise. the realignment continued secretary panetta who crafted new strategic guidance in an f.y. 2013 defense budget plan which reduced the department's top line by $487 billion over the course of a decade. the president's request of $526.6 billion for fy 2014 continues to implement the president's defense strategic guidance and enhances the department's efforts at institutional reform. most critically, it sustains the quality of the all-volunteer force and t

police department in the world, something i'm very proud of. but it's a complex environment. 8.4 million people. we wanted to know more about the neighborhoods that we were policing. that's the report that we did. the so-called demographics unit since change theed name, but that's what you're reporting about. it was never put in place to generate leads. it was put in place for us to have contextual information. people will say you have people not generating leads. but we generate leads in other ways, but not from that particular unit. >> how important is it it to have the cooperation of the muslim community? because one thing i'm struck by, it is citizens who report things. so the time square bomber, the police was a block away but it was a local vender who tips you off. in this case, it it appears that this guy who got his legs blown off said i want to tell you something. i saw this guy dropping a bag off. so is it important to have a cooperative relationship between a police department and these communities that you're looking at? >> sure. and we have a strong working relationship with
basis. simply because the threat environment has changed doesn't mean our constitution is so flexible that we can ignore its provisions. i do think that what we ought to call on the administration to do is come forward with a new structure and to articulate how the rule of law will support protecting the country in this new threat environment. there wasn't a case for treating this brother as an enemy combatant and i think it was very premature for my senate colleagues to call for him to be treated that way. >> congressman, thank you very much. >>> up next the attorney for american wife of tamerlan tsarnaev said she had no knowledge of the attacks. does that add up? and the destructive nature of the pressure cooker bomb and what can be done to stop them? we have a special investigation. omnipotent of opportunity. you know how to mix business... with business. and you...rent from national. because only national lets you choose any car in the aisle. and go. you can even take a full-size or above. and still pay the mid-size price. i could get used to this.

's a target-rich environment. the fact that they're here and took part of the educational system and one was with a scholarship potentially. it's deeply disturbing and makes you wonder what goes through somebody's mind that can hurt innocent people, women and children and spectators. it's cowardly and hopefully we'll learn from this issue and grow from it. i tell you what, stuart, i don't know what else to say except that god bless everybody who's been saying prayers for us and also for those folks who have been doing their jobs and putting their lives on the line trying to make us all safe. stuart: well said. i'm going to ask you if you'd stay there for one second. i have to take a brief pause so we can go on to delay. by going on delay we can show you pictures coming from the house in watertown and to make sure. we've got to delay to make sure you don't see anything untwoowa. i've got a five second delay. hold on, everyone. now, senator brown, still with us and appreciate you being here with us on a difficult day for boston. would you describe again, the center of boston, downtown? i t
. it was also a test of the media and many outlets failed. it was a chaotic environment where information was at a premium because the nation was scared and needing to know if the danger was ongoing and where it had come from and thus how to contextualize it. in those moments the egoes of media people come out wanting to show how connected we are, that we can get the information first or how smart we are we can make the big assertion first. in environments like that when the public and authorities are in a mob mode yelling for a body to attack, media must take extra care to not stoke the wrong flames or tell people of bombs, or connections to foreign terror groups that aren't real. in these moments we risk yelling fire in a crowded theater because incorrect information can cause a dangerous stampede toward an innocent person or group of people or sew fear that makes us think the world is more dangerous than it actually is. there is a desire within media to be first with big news, with developments that mark the closing of a chapter, with items that will change how swirn seve sees and repo
a different approach and a different legal basis. but simply because the threat environment changed doesn't mean that our constitution is so flexible that we can ignore its provisions. i do think that what we ought to call the administration to do is come forward with a new structure and to articulate how the rule of law will support protecting the country in this new threat environment. but there just wasn't the case for treating this brother as an enemy combatant and i think it was very premature for some of my senate colleagues to call for limb to be treated that way. >> interesting point. also interesting we need to really reconsider. thank you very much, congressman. we appreciate your time.

our environment. [ sniffing ] [ seagulls squawking ] >> welcome back. here is what we know all about dzhokhar tsarnaev the suspect is still at large. he has been identified as a 900. his older brother was killed. both of them are from russia, and chechnya. they have been in the united states for a lease 10 years. this photo was taken on the robbery at a 711 and cambridge last night. >> this is what launched the events that happened last night. here are pictures there were taken from russia's version of facebook. they showed the second suspect police are looking for. >> there is also some you tube activity as well as drivers license photos. if they know exactly who they are looking for. he is considered to be extremely dangerous considering the fact that the two brothers led police on a chase after robbing a 711. they killed a m-i-t officer and a transit officer was injured. they also carjacked someone. they did let the driver go. he was unharmed. they were throwing bombs at the police officers and that is when the 26 year-old was killed. they stated that found explosives on his body.
they have total visual environment, they are trying to evacuate any residents in the area from the neighborhood, and as was noted, now they went to move, the flash-bangs, be methodical. the one thing, they're not certain but they're operating under the assumption there are explosives in that yard. >> you know, i think one of the best examples for your viewers, i'm sure many of them saw "zero dark thirty." there was an initial assault phase, helicopters crashing in and all, then it seemed like minutes went by as people then started deliberately moving through and that's kind of a parallel to what you're going to see happen here tonight. but i think within a few hours of darkness, this could be favorably resolved. >> one of our producers is near the scene. lawrence, what are you seeing and hearing? >> well, i'm at washburn and chester streets, which is about a block from franklin street, where i'm told from a boston police source they have a suspect cornered in the backyard of a home. i'm also told that they're using flash-bangs to try to get him out. the number one priority for
for our country, this attack. whether or not we are living in an environment that looks more like israel and great britain under the ira where these sort of things happen and we become used to them. that is not a reality that any of us want to accept in this country. i wonder if the administration -- which side of this they will fall on. i think we will see from eric holder what their take is really on this when it comes down to the way it's prosecuted. any guthrie action to whether or not this -- gut reaction to whether or not this signals a change. >> reporter: i think they will say to try this american citizen through the normal civil courts, civilian criminal courts, and that may have a harder sell. i'm not saying that is not what is going to happen, i'm not saying that is not what the administration can do, but i think they need to make the case. remember at the height, martha, of the problems that the british had with terror attacks from the ira, they created a special set of courts named for a fabled british judge named lord diplock. they didn't use the formal process for certain

as well as the overall fiscal environment, i believe that controlling energy costs across the board now and in the future is an important goal for the department of defense. the operational energy implementation plan that was -- that identified incorporating energy security concerns into the requirements and acquisitions process as one of the targets for the department to implement, you know, i wtedte importance of those goals and how we are doing and making sure that energy use criteria and factors are consideredded in acquisition planning processes. >> thank you, senator. as i noted in my response for me or the leadership in the department of defense, our energy use, our energy sources, cost and energy, are and must be a high priority. that's research and development. it's not just budget, but it's the security, reliant of our sources of energy, so we continue to put a high priority on programs. we continue to invest in those programs. as you noted, as has been much of the conversation this morning, we have less money. >> uh-huh. >> appears we're going to have even less money, so we h
and this guy, 19 years old, on the run and in an environment he doesn't know with just the shoes on his feet maybe has been able to elude. now, that's probably very lucky on his part but law enforcement sitting there right now with their fingers crossed hoping he's still in the area because they may not know where to look next, al. >> that's my point, james. lucky for him maybe. hopefully he doesn't have that luck. but scary for others. i mean, i'm an early riser. i wake up early this morning, 5:00 a.m., in the middle of the night both of them have been caught, one's dead, the other's at large, there's no way i would believe that at nightfall the next day he would still be at large. what could be the possible scenarios? i hear when clint or don say that he is maybe somewhere and came home from work but they were on lockdown. people didn't go to work. so what could be a scenario to comfort me if i'm a citizen in watertown? >> that's right, reverend al. i don't think we can give you total comfort. the superintendent laid out the reason it happened. he was clear, they had a tremendous shootout,
sweating in a cold environment. they're focused on what they're doing. they don't fit in with the crowd. so this is a way of actually, without the technology, but with the civilians or police or law enforcement officers actually looking for suspects in a crowd, these are some ways that you can actually find and detect a suspect like this. >> mike: you've been the pictures of the boston suspects. would they have given you cause for concern just by their appearances, the way they were behaving? >> no doubt, no doubt. immediately after the events, obviously, i was watching the video stream coming through. you can see that the crowd watching the finish of the boston marathon are watching the runners whereas these two were not watching the marathon at all. you know, they were very focused on where they were going. one was walking after the other, in a hurry, it seemed. their dress, their stride, the walk. there's a specific walk that a suspect of this nature has. a characteristic that a normal person, under normal circumstances, wouldn't have. so with the right training, even civilians can be le
. there are actors within that environment. for them, had this been directly tied to have these two individuals been directly tied to those groups, i would be surprised if they didn't want to claim it. there are anti-american sentiments. host: what surprised you the most as you go through this data? guest: one of the positive surprises was the willingness the american people and working with law enforcement and department of homeland security in a way similar to the administration strategy for preventing violent extremism. a community-oriented approach that will increase communication between the community and government, and prevent radicalization from happening in the first place, and if it does occur, allowing the government and community to deal with it in a positive way before a terrorist plot is hatched. 57% of respondents indicated a willingness to work with law enforcement and dhs to establish those relationships ahead of time. it is a positive story. i see a lot of value in a community-oriented approach towards these counter radicalization. host: national consortium for the study of terrori
environment for the exercise of civil liberties. this includes the measures with respect to registration of ngos as foreign agents but also restrictions on press and internet freedom act. so we've made clear our commitment to dialogue on human rights with the russian government, but we also remain actually committed to open dialogue with civil society and supporting their efforts. >> can i do a follow-up on that? i just wanted, i mean, the u.s. government has talked a lot about, concern about human rights abuses in chechnya. and i just wonder if you think the events in boston are going to change in any way the way the government will see human rights in chechnya? >> with respect to the ongoing investigationnbston, i just etars, that would be highly inappropriate to make further comment at this time. with respect to the situation in the northern caucasus, i can tell you this has been part of our human rights reporting. on russia and our country reports since 1995 you'll find quite a bit of information in this year's report. and they know serious human rights abuses taking place, and acts

from criticism that it ignored the threat he environment in benghazi. we're back with the panel. it goes on kirsten. >> what difference does it makes a secretary clinton would say democrats are claiming political hit job by the republicans and frequently these things do get politicized but i would say the democrats were welcomed to be part of this, i'm sure and nobody is stopping them from investigating benghazi and they embarrassed themselves during the hearings, spending the whomentd time trying to make up stories for why the administration dropped the ball on this. so, one of the most interesting things in this is that secretary clinton, when she was testifying, said that she was not aware that nothing came to her attention in terms of security for the embassy and, in fact, it turns out that it did. and her exact words were i made it very clear the security cables did not come to my attention or above the assistant secretary level. well it did go above the assistant secretary level. it wally actually went to her office. weather she saw it or not is a different question it def
's absolutely the case in an environment, like the one you 1/2 syria, that proving chemical weapons use can be difficult. but we are engaged in a process of trying to investigate and verify these allegations. >> so it depends what the definition of chemical weapons is. that works to president assads a advantage, and at the same time it does give the white house some wiggle room when everybody goes back to the red line phrase. >> shepard: very valuable wiggle room. we're now hearing from the guy who says the boston bombing suspect carjacked him before they're wild chase and shootout with police. ahead, what he claims they told him and how he says he escaped. >> father and son canoe trip begins in horror after an alligator attacked the kid. an incredible story. >> shepard: this is "studio b." it's the bottom of the hour. time for the top of the news. chilling new details from the man who claims one of the boston terror suspects carjacked him at point and bragged to him about carrying out the bombings. police say the suspect stole the suv last thursday night. then led the cops on an overnight
the threat from canada. the environment has changed and whatever good this bill has, it's going to take a back seat right now. what do you say? >> well, look, whenever there's a crime, you saw this on the shootings, the murders in connecticut. people wanted gun control before the shootings, tried to exploit that tragedy. the people who are against high-skilled workers coming into this country, all the antiimmigrant groups, are against all immigrants, not just some, and they're already trying to exploit these murders in boston to attack immigration of everybody. i don't think it will work. the american people are smarter than that. yes, the fbi should good of bad guys, evidently they let some slip through their fingers, in the case of boston. but everything in this bill moves in the right direction for security and the american economy, and all the kind of questions you ought to have. shame on the people who tried to use the murders in boston to undermine immigration reform. i don't think they'll be able to do it. >> neil: all right. thank you very much. good seeing you again, grover nor
up our freedom of movement this get to this zier' zero rist environment, but that does not mean washington will not try. melissa: looking at evidence in very early days, but early things we know, is there anything that could have been done to prevent it. >> there are always things that could be done, and i am echoing copanellist baker, any time we increase security, we have to decrease our freedoms looking at this new law up in new york. about guns and amount of clips that is a knee-jerk reaction that is the thing that frightens me that frightens all of us in law enforcement. whatever decision that our government desireds to do, let's hope they think it through, before they push the new laws down our throats. melissa: michael barrett, rod makes point that i started of, no matter how you feel about gun legislation put forward. you cannot argue it would not have prevented what happened in sandy hook. in the wake of this, you think lawmakers could sweep in again and come up with something that would not have stopped this from happening but achieve some other goal, right? >> that is
to this environment. >> clayton: would you need to show that the suspect was abouting on behalf of foreign power or in capacity as a military combatant to try him in a military trial? >> that is correct or treat him, put him in military system. we have don't have all the facts but the arguement is this. his older brother was inducted in al-qaeda affiliateddentity while he was being trained in russia. he came back and inducted his own brother. not all the facts on the table but what is troubling to me and senator whose statement you read is the administration is utterly uninterested in exploring this. they want the option off the table. instead of waiting for days or a couple of weeks until all the facts are in. i will be the first one to say if the facts don't support the classification as enemy combatant we should not do that, but we should not rush the process to give benefit of treating it as enemy combatant. >> clayton: what stood out to me the president's comments we're safe. we got him there. seemed to be a sense of wait a second, do we know all of the details yet? do we know the connectio
with our reduced output so the faith is still there, that it's well run in a bad macro economic environment which comes back to mcdonald's which you have a note out today from sus can dehanna which says it is executing across the world and it is stable in its market share or gaining and it is against it. that seems to be the major theme. >> another theme that's sort of emerged in these big companies, citigroup, as well is the strength of the latin american consumer and the latin american corporation. caterpillar noting that lshg, even though china continues to be weak and there seems to be a shift from asia pacific to latin america coming from these multinationals. >> resuming the buyback does not hurt by the end of the year. it had approved for a while in '07. >> and that might be taking some of the sting out of this today. >> when we come back, yet another price target cut for apple ahead of its earnings and this time from bmo. colin gilles over at bgc is upgrading the stock this morning. which one is right? we'll hear from both analysts this morning. the dow coming off its worst week sin
measures that he's undertaken. for example he's been a little bit good on the environment where i think the latin left has been traditionally quite weak. >> i think he's incomparable. i don't think there's another leader like him or has pen in a long time. his charisma was off the charts. that's not necessarily a bad thing. the left has to learn how to administer. in terms of the 20th century of latin american history maybe juan perone or a few leaders here and there but i think chavez was really one of a kind. >> i'd rather we not have either a fidel or a chavez in the future. i think we're beyond that. what's interesting, for example, about someone like lula who was charismatic and successful and everything he has tended to fade away. he apparently is not running for his third term. a couple years from now. >> he's also ill. his successor is not doing a bad job. little by little what we're getting over in latin america and it's a good thing is this charismatic leaders some of whom are more successful and more attractive than others. one can like. one can dislike. those are personal qu
and take steps to address the environment degradation. the issues are polarizing. [laughter] but president grimson serve as iceland's finance minister. in 2008 he presided over iceland's near economic collapse. the country's unique response which included social and political reform and allowing the banks to pull pulled iceland back from the brink without the austerity measures. perhaps most challenging of all he raised twin girls. please hiv me give a warm national press club welcome back to president grimsson. [applause] [applause] >> thank you. thank you very much. for these words of welcome and thank you for hosting us at the national press club here today for a special occasion where i have privilege to announce the establishment of a new venue aimed at enhangs the dialogue on corporate issues. i know, sometimes here in washington, the arctic looks as if it is far away. perhapses in the minds of many, still the hidden part of the world as it was. in the beginning of the 20th century. where the knowledge of that the neighbor to our countries was still very limited. and in fact remains
they've imposed this really a unpresdenned security environment in the boston area this morning. >> is it a new threat that they're trying to figure out? is that -- a new threat come in in the last few hours and that's what explains it or just finding this third relative or potentially? >> yeah, i'm not sure that i'd call them a threat. just a concern that they may have had accomplices and whether those accomplices have made threats, i don't know. but i believe that's the -- i believe that's part of the answer why they're concerned here. although i have to point out, we heard conflicting information about this. but several people who are in a position to know and are good sources say that that is the concern. now, as for the two brothers. i think you've discussed this some. the family came to the u.s., we're told, in 2002 or 2003 and claimed asylum. the father had been some kind of public official in either chechnya or kyrgyzstan. either a prosecutor or a police officer. so, the brothers have been here for a decade. one was born in russia. one is born in kyrgyzstan. and, so, the
yan. tla there's been tough military action. you flee that environment. you come into the united states. you go to school. you get a scholarship. you have friends. but somewhere in that leadened, deadened heart, head of yours, it's still not good enough. there is a cause that's more important, not survival, and i'm not sure we'll ever be able to comprehend that. we need to try because it may give us potential to identify other people. here we have a rather remarkable journey these two young men took. a journey literally millions have taken. and they've contributed to the united states. their contribution was death and destruction. of innocent people. we may never understand, rationalize, how. >> as you reference the uncle who pleaded with his nephew, dzhokhar, give yourself up, give yourself up. and of course that is the fervent wish of law enforcement officials for a number of reasons. one is for the survival of dzhokhar tsarnaev because there is a manhunt for him and he will not escape that network of law enforcement at some point. this will not come to a good end. but also fro
? >> regardless of what we think, we have to pursue that angle. you can't bet on what you think in an environment like this. you've got to understand that if there is a network, we can't pretend that there's not. so when you're looking at these two kids, to me, everything that they did suggests that they're amateurs. where they placed the weapon, the fact that they didn't o obscure themselves when they walked down the street, the primitive nature of the explosives. but we've been focused on these two spiders, most media is not talking about the search for the spider web. did they get training, did they get weapons, did they get travel? >> neither of these suspects are on a watch list or were on a watch list. the older brother goes to russia, comes back, starts posting videos online about islam, about terrorism. did we miss this? was there something where we should have actually been able to know? >> posting videos is a free speech issue, and if were still in the fbi, we would be very cautious about looking at something like that. because you're allowed to be a radical in this country. this countr
that come from conflict situations come into peaceful environments, and all of a sudden, and they're not given appropriate psychological pair, can also have enormous problems assimilating in a very different culture. >> and in terms of these two individuals living in cambridge, massachusetts, having come from chechnya, any thoughts there, why cambridge? why they've been living here together for so many years? why they chose boston? >> well, i think on the east coast that there is a burgeoning, it's by no means as large as europe, of course, the largest population of chechen is in austria, but i think there is a growing group of people along the east coast, in d.c., and in new york, and in boston, and clearly, chechens are also russian speaking, so there is, obviously, a large contingent of russian-speaking people also in boston. and from how i understand it, it seems as though their uncle was already here in the united states, and i think that they had other friends who could help them to settle into the country, and to assimilate, so, often, you choose a place precisely because y
right now. anybody part of that effort who has a capability to engage in a close environment like this certainly is going to be deployed. there could be explosives. you have to assume if there is this individual here, tsarnaev is held up, he may have additional explosives with him. he may be armed with semiautomatic or pistols. you have to assume the whole broad range of force capability. he might have at his disposal. >> don't forget, this is a 19-year-old young man who was really falling the lead, we believe, from all reports of his older brother. his older brother rather than being captured was throwing devices, explosives at authorities and had an ied strapped to him. so they are expecting the worst here. >> and also his desperation would be multiplied by the fact that he has knowledge that he ran over his brother as he escaped and the fact that he had anything to do with the killing of his brother is unimaginable. >> right. >> and now he's alone. obviously guilt-ridden. terrified. >> exhausted. >> yep. >> he may be injured. since monday you can't believe this individual has h
that they have total visual environment. they tried to evacuate any residents in the area in the neighborhood. it's been noted, now when to move the flash bang. be methodical. they're not certain, they're not certain but they're operating under the assumption that there are explosives in that house. >> i think one of the best examples for your viewers, i'm sure many of them saw zero dark 30 and there was an initial assault phase, helicopter come in and minutes went by by the time people started moving through. that's a parallel of what you're going to see happen tonight. within a few hours of darkness, this could be favorably resolved. >> one of our producers, lawrence cook is near the scene. what are you seeing? >> we're on washburn. we've been told that they have the suspect cornered in the backyard of a home. i'm also told that they are using flash bangs to try to get him out. the number one priority is for the police as they try to get this suspect out alive. they want to see him go to trial. i'm surprised at the amount of neighbors that have gathered around this area. there's 40 to 50 people
